10 Years Ago, You Paid Much Less for These Foods

NEW YORK (MainStreet) - If beef is what's for dinner, it'll cost you an arm and a leg.

The rising cost of food has created a huge headache for consumers in the United States. According to a recent Nielsen survey, food is the number one reason people tightened their belts when it came to shopping for other products like household, health and beauty items. It makes sense-we've been paying more for food for a while now. Since 2004, the overall price of food has increased by an average of 29%, but the price of many individual foods skyrocketed beyond that.

Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we compiled a list of 10 foods that have shot up in price from the end of 2004 until March 2014. Read them and you'll be able to grumble about "back-in-the-day" prices with conviction.
